Dany Heatley Traded to San Jose Sharks

According the TSN (and I'm fairly confident this is true this time), Dany Heatley has actually been traded to the San Jose Sharks:

Sources tell TSN, Dany Heatley has been traded to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Milan Michalek, Jonathan Cheechoo and a second round pick.

Trade discussions heated up on Friday and Saturday morning before a deal was finally agreed to. A deal that sends Heatley to the team he secretly wanted all along. A team he believed was an option when he refused to waive his no-move clause to accept a trade to the Edmonton Oilers.

The troubled winger has been vying for a trade all summer, after complaining that he felt he was not properly utilized in Ottawa. Heatley had done this once before as well, basically forcing the Atlanta Thrashers to trade him a few years go.

Giving up Cheechoo and Michalek is a steep price to pay for Heatley, a player with incredible potential but who has shown time and again has serious attitude issues. A two-time 50 goal scorer, Heatley has a $7.5 million cap hit this season and still has five years remaining on his six-year, $45 million contract.

Good luck, San Jose.
